Pool / Spa
Wonderful - home from home. Villa comfortable, very well equipped.
Lovely quiet road in a small village.
Met at the airport by the amazing Pam and Ivor, they ensure you get to the villa, have a few essentials in the fridge on arrival and are at the end of the phone if you need anything. What a lovely couple they are.
Lovely looking pool, just far too cold to get in, ( would have been happy to pay extra to have pool heated) so not used for the whole two weeks. The pool was well kept - with a pool man visiting every few days.
Gardens are beautifully maintained. Lovely pots of geraniums in full bloom, which I watered every other day. Gardeners came whilst we were there to trim the bushes and plant a new fur tree.
The area is stunning, nearby beaches.
Fantastic butcher (meat market) close by, my goodness the steaks and chops were huge. Three supermarkets close by: Carrefour, AB and Lidl, used all three.
The island is just gorgeous, two weeks is not enough to do everything, so Patrick and Eileen we will be back. We want to hire a boat for a day and tour around the coves and the nearby island of Ithaca.
One of the nicest holidays I have had. Lovely to have comfortable bed and settees, just like home.
Thankyou Patrick and Eileen for sharing your wonderful second home. I am very envious.

Lovely villa, great location
We had a brilliant holiday at Villa Amelia with our two small children. The villa was excellent, it felt really homely and Patrick and Eileen had provided everything you could possibly need. It was also great to have Pam and Ivor meet us at the airport and be nearby if we had any questions. The outside space is great at the villa too.
Kefalonia is beautiful and peaceful with some amazing beaches.
We'd highly recommend this villa.
Our holiday in Vila Amelia
Just returned from 10 fantastic days at Villa Amelia. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there the Villa is just as described, with good Wi-Fi, the pool and garden are totally private. We rented a car and enjoyed the area a short drive to the capital Argostoli. Our favourite Restaurant The Olive Grove was a short drive away and would be an easy walk. The Villa is managed by Ivor and Pam who were very helpful and knowledgeable, collecting us from the airport and pointing out their favourites.
We feel sure we will return. Stephen and Amanda.
Lovely villa in an excellent location
This is Patrick and Eileen's holiday home and it certainly feels like a real home from home. The property is very well furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need, including an extensively equipped kitchen, dvd library, ipod deck etc. It is set in a very peaceful village location with views over open countryside to the mountains. The gardens are pretty with an excellent barbeque/outdoor dining area that we used on numerous occasions. The pool is maintained to a very high standard. We were very glad that we were met at the airport by Ivor as we would never have found the villa otherwise, he also gave us a wealth of information about the island and although we had no problems with the villa, it was re-assuring to know that he and Pamela were close at hand if we needed them. The villa is only 10 minutes from the airport, but we didn't experience any aircraft noise whatsoever. We have stayed in a number of villas on various Greek islands but this is the best yet and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
Lovely villa in central location
This is a lovely villa in a great location. The presentation of the villa is immaculate and the facilities offered are excellent - for example it was great to have a juicer to squeeze fresh orange juice every morning. The villa is equipped so that you can e njoy both the outside space which is lovingly maintained or cuddle up and watch a couple of DVDs.
The meet and greet at the airport is excellent and that together with the hassle free small airport means that this is the most relaxing holiday that we have had.
The island is much greener than expected and the roads quiet, I would definitely advise travelling round to explore and the well presented house manual pointed us in the right direction of where to visit.
Our favourite local beach was Avithos and we had good meals in both tavernas. Further afield both Antisamos and Petani are real wow locations.
A great place to stay
Had a lovely stay at Villa Amelia for a week as a family of four. Accomodation, pool and garden is of a high quality and we wanted for nothing. Quick wifi and extensive dvd library also good for chilling out time.
The meet and greet at the airport was welcomed as this means the stress of map reading after a long journey was avoided. Also Ivor was able to give us a good base knowledge of the local area.
Would recommend the local taverna and a visit to Argostoli harbour at about 10am to see the turtles - you really get up close.
Villa Amelia is located in the village of Metaxata, a small traditional village with many beautiful gardens. It is a 10 minute drive to the capital Argostoli & the popular resort of Lassi. There are many beaches within an 8/15 mins drive: Avithos, a blue flag beach, is just 8 minutes by car. In 1823, Lord Byron stayed in Metaxata for several months. He was inspired by the natural beauty of the village and the pleasant demeanour of the locals. He wrote many poems praising this wonderful place.His statue stands in the central square of Metaxata. The village has one mini- market which is 5 minutes walk from the villa. Lakithra, the next village 1km away, has a few mini-markets, a bakery and a taverna which is very popular with the locals. There is also a cake shop which has a sinful array of pastries, for those of us who are weak! The villa is well positioned to explore the island. Metaxata along with neighbouring Kourkoumelata is one of the islands most picturesque areas.
Other Activities: Ten Pin Bowling in the local village of Travliata just a 5 mins drive.
